      What a great variation on our usual couscous, but still simple to do. I used chicken stock powder rather than salt and my instant couscous had soaked up all the liquid and was tender within three minutes. Thanks for posting as we both really enjoyed it and felt it went so well with our Middle Eastern style chicken.
